All I know about upcoming summer MBC Mon-Tues drama Risky Romance (Life-and-death Romance) is that it’s set in a hospital about the falling in love of a prickly surgeon and an emotional endocrinologist. That’s as broad strokes as legal dramas being about an underdog fighting the corrupt for justice. The drama stars underrated leads Ji Hyun Woo and Lee Shi Young, a fantastic pairing if you ask me, with the PD of the original I Need Romance and earlier dramas Wonderful Life and She is Nineteen. The preview makes it look slapsticky but as long as it doesn’t go overboard and grate like the early episodes of The Undateables then I’m all good, both leads have a strong comedic track record with plenty of onscreen chemistry with previous costars.
